Tobacco Treatment Program

DHD#10 currently has five staff members who are trained under the University of Massachusetts Medical School Tobacco Treatment Specialist Program. In this program, a specialist will work one-on-one, open to both youth and adults, to help them better understand the effects of tobacco and nicotine on their health. Specialists can also assist with developing an individual specific program to quit and will work closely with a clients's health care provider to assure they are getting the personal medical support they need to succeed in becoming tobacco-free.
